The Steelcase Leap Chair is available with or without arms. There are some applications where arms get in the way of tasks. For computer users we recommend Steelcase arms because they're some of the best on the market and they can lower to about thigh level. The highly adjustable arms move in and out, forward and back, up and down and pivot, so you can find the exact position for optimal support and comfort.

Steelcase Leap Chair Features

  • Adjustable Lumbar Support: The Leap Chair offers strong lumbar support to ensure your lower back doesn't sag, helping to prevent serious pain and long-term back health issues.

  • Upper Back Force Adjustment: Customize the resistance you feel as you recline in the Leap chair with an intuitive dial on the left side of chair. This makes rocking back and forth more comfortable.
  • Lower Back Firmness Adjustment: Add even more lumbar support by adjusting the lower back firmness, which supports your lower back and helps prevent hunching and lower back sagging.
  • Natural Seat Glide: This feature promotes spinal health by allowing the Leap Chair's seat to glide forward as you lean back, which keeps your posture at a supported and comfortable level.
  • Adjustable Arms: The Leap Chair's arms are incredibly easy to manipulate. They move in and out, forward and back, up and down and pivot, so you can find the exact position you need for any task or position.
  • Cooling Comfort: The Leap Chair's back foam and progressive back slat system also keep you cool and comfortable, so you get the breathability of a mesh chair with the superior support of a foam padded upholstered chair.

with bated breath I waited for this chair ! it took a fews days longer than anticipated to arrive ! just got it out of the box and adjusted it just the way i want ! the arm rests do have some cushy to them, just right ! i got the basic cloth and i am completely pleased with it ! i have the lower back revved up to the most support setting and the upper back setting as loose as it goes ! the arms i have pulled in and up as far as it goes ! my feet lightly touch the floor ! the arms are adjusted to the height of my dinner tray believe it or not on which i have a very small apple iMac keyboard ! i just lowered the arms to the bottom and put the keyboard on my legs ! all perfect ! I find i do like to lean back ! I have significant scoliosis and I am a born writer ! i should have gotten this chair years ago ! ahhh well I finally came to my senses and got excited about getting a chair ! i mean really . . . . somehow it was not the first thing on my mind to spend so much money on ! i still plan on setting a timer for 30 to 60 minute intervals and jumping up and doing moving things all day alternated with sitting down ! I don't plan on sitting for hours on end without getting up even on this chair ! But hurray ! shazaam ! when I do sit i do feel so much happier ! Thank you Human Solutions !

I have an ongoing lower back pain from pulling my back muscle too many times. This is a great chair to soften the pressure on my lower back and to maintain circulation in the lower legs. I'm thrilled! Well worth the investment. It came fully built with a beautiful red fabric of my choosing.

Perfectly satisfied; worth the price

I was reluctant to spend $715 on a chair, but my previous, inexpensive desk chair was causing me tremendous pain and sleepless nights. Months of damage had occurred before I realized my chair was the culprit. As soon as I replaced it with my Leap chair, I began to heal. I'm almost fully recovered. I love all of the adjustments the chair has, and I've found that by moving and adjusting every hour or so, I can be comfortable in the chair the whole work day.

Almost perfect
April 18, 2013
I bought the Leap chair in leather with headrest. The ergonomics on this adjustable chair are excellent except for one thing. I have a bad hip and the seat padding is just too thin for my hip to be comfortable. I really like the chair other than the excruciating hip pain from the thin seat. Does anyone know of a thicker seat replacement available in the aftermarket?

Steelcase Leap Ergonomic Office Chair
February 9, 2013
I was looking for a chair that would be comfortable to sit in for up to 12 hours at a time and I found it in the Steelcase Leap Ergonomic Office chair. This chair is comfortable, came already assembled and totally adjustable. I purchased the foot stool too and together they make a great combo. The only thing I might have done differently is to have ordered the chair with a head rest. I would recommend this Ergonomic Office Chair to anyone who's looking for comfort while working. Bridget
